While I was in Florida for the recent AICI Conference I was lucky enough to connect with the completely fabulous Sue Donnelly, author of Heading South, Feel Fab at 50, The 80/20 Makeover and Does My Belly Look Big in This? and I asked her straight away if she’d do a guest post. Sue runs an image consulting business based in Peterborough UK called Accentuate, plus has a blog Feel Fab at 50. The photos here of Sue were all taken be me on my iphone camera at the AICI Conference so I apologise for the quality.
How would you describe your personal style?
Great style is knowing what suits you – the physical body and the ‘inner’ you – and giving it your own unique ‘twist’ so that it’s not only authentic but very different. If I boiled my style down to two words, they would be Comfortable and Creative. By doing this, it becomes so much easier to get it right whatever the occasion, whatever the trends.

How do you balance new trends with a more timeless look?
I always love new trends and get bored very easily so fashion and being currentwill always play a huge role in my wardrobe. The secret is to only buy into the trends you love and then adapt them for your body and your age group. If you are older, this usually means that wearing a trend from top to toe won’t work. So mix and match with staple, well loved items in your wardrobe to get a unique’ take’.
